Sole Collector Spotlight // What Did You Wear Today? - Weekend Recap - 6.10.13
words // Luis Sanchez
Its time to take a look back at another weekend of footwear as part of our WDYWT Spotlight.
This weekend was filled with a variety of favorites from all the respected brands, ranging from adidas to Nike, to the Jordan Brand and New Balance. The recently released Air Max Plus makes their first WDYWT appearance, followed by an original pair of the Rivalry Low by adidas. A recently released Flyknti Chukka also made the cut as part of today's feature, along with two favorite Zoom Kobe styles.

Word. I've sent in months and months of pics and none have been posted. I guess these dudes are in an inner circle or something.
Yeah I guess so. I gave up sending in pics. I've sent in a bunch of good pics of rare kicks and they go and post some GRs or something not even in the same league instead. Everyone should have a chance to shine at least once but I don't see it changing unfortunately. I don't even think they choose by the kicks. It seems like they pick by names and who they know. Just look at this weeks pics. I know people sent in better pics than what was posted. Wish they'd mix it up a bit.
I 2ND THIS NOTION LOL[/quote]
i'm not sure where youre sending in pics, but in order to get on here you need to post them in the WDYWT thread in the Clothing/Accessories forum. the photos should preferably be high quality (i.e. taken with a nice camera, or at least with some thought behind the photo composition). Just posting up a filtered instagram photo of something you consider rare heat is not always going to cut it. i'd take a look at how these photos actually LOOK and see what they're doing that you're not, besides possibly posting in the wrong thread.[/quote]
Bro, you honestly think that pic with the vans is high quality? Please. My iPhone 5 could take better pics than some of these shots. Half of these pics sometimes that are posted are just a GR pair of kicks taken on a sidewalk. How is that creative or contain thought put behind it? Obviously I'm not the only one who feels this way so there must be something more going on to get your pics posted.[/quote]
I don't know anyone on here, including Luis Sanchez who writes these columns, and I'm still on the spotlight 6/10 times. Every time I've gotten on here it's been either a really good picture I took, or a new pair that not a lot of people have, or a really random pair. Honestly, I can't call it, but I've never gotten on here with a wink and a handshake and there's no conspiracy theory there. So, put simply, you cannot be right. just post in the correct thread.
one thing I DO do is post a new pic every day in that thread, so I have a lot better odds then someone that only comes in once or twice a week.[/quote]
Tony and Matt are exactly right......i posted for over a year before i made the spotlight and i upped my camera game by ten fold since then. invest in a nice camera and take good pics. set your shots up and recognize there is work and thought put into these pictures which increases our odds of getting featured. also helps to post in the correct forum although i have made this spotlight before by simply taking a nice pic not posting in the correct thread....so don't get mad just get determined to pull out heat and take nice captures with a decent camera. thats how we are getting featured week after week. also helps if you just realize that you won't make every spotlight...or any at all if you take poorly conceived shots with a crap ass camera. as for sending in flicks..........i know what you guys are talking about/doing and that has no effect on the spotlight......sorry to tell you that but i don't think they even check that email wdywt link off of the home page.
great Met Vs Matt!! those kobes are hot even though i can't sport his kicks....
thanks for the spot again SC and all you haters just put your work in and stop complaining.....you don't sound jealous at all
hey guy that tends to complain about tattoos in the pics.......its our bodies so get off your high horse! this is about kicks so just realize its summer and people have tattoos okay!!!!???
